Love the cabins in the State Park. Enjoy the gift shop and the grounds especially in the Spring. Love the peace & quiet except for the voices of nature. So refreshing to my very soul. Love this place.

They hold the folk festival here every year on the Friday, Saturday & Sunday of Memorial Day weekend. We went on Saturday for the first time this year and had a great time. The Park has lots of shade and the festival is laid out well with various stages, tents & pavilions featuring all kinds of music - fiddle, banjo,... More

This is the second time I have been there in the last 20 years and it is still such a beautiful place to visit. I used to swim in the old spring house as a young boy 8 or 9 years old back in the late forties and early 50's. The museum was lovely and so informative. Thank you, jim... More

We stayed here three nights. The campground is well kept, clean and the sites feel private. This is a small park, 45 camp sites in a rural area. No tv reception off the air, we do not have satellite gear.

We camped for 2 days here. Nice level sites with water and electric hookups, and a fire ring. There's miles of hiking trails and a canoe/ kayak launch on the Suwanee River. The Carilion bells ring often, and a museum in the bell tower. And the birds are at your campsite every morning, singing you a good morning song. And... More

We live in Gainesville, just down the road, but had never visited the park. We rented one of the cabins for a few nights and it was well equipped and in good order. We walked the Florida Trail, having to turn back after a few miles due to high water, and it was beautiful. The exhibits in the museum and... More

I was staying in Live Oak for a couple of days and decided to do a day trip to somewhere other than Wal Mart. I used trip advisor and found some quick easy things in White Springs. Having grown up in Live Oak, I have visited here when I was in elementary school for a field trip. The main thing... More

A nice peaceful setting with many interesting art/craft demos and a collection of old pianos. I would have liked more information about Foster, but it seems there's not much available anywhere. It surprised me that he never lived in the south.
